Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1797
Jiang Chen was unable to calm down. He had once heard it from Big Yellow that the Immortal Execution King had a daughter who was also born with a cold and icy physique. As the Immortal Execution King and Great Sovereign Zang Xian had sworn to live and die together, it made sense that the daughter of Immortal Execution King would appear inside the coffin. Jiang Chen had tried to ask Big Yellow if the daughter of Immortal Execution King looked the same as Yan Chenyu, but she was merely a baby when Big Yellow saw her, so he didn’t know how she looked like after she grew up.
As for the Monarch Mountain, it was created by the fierce battle between Empress Nine Yin and Great Sovereign Batian. Yan Chenyu carried the Nine Yin Meridians, and the daughter of the Immortal Execution King might also possess the same kind of physique. So Jiang Chen was bold enough to guess that the daughter of Immortal Execution King was Empress Nine Yin.
The most important thing was that there had been no signs of the existence of the remains of Great Sovereign Batian all these years, until the moment the Immortal Burying Coffin appeared. So, it was imaginable that there was a certain relationship between the two. As to why the coffin appeared above the Monarch Mountain, Jiang Chen speculated that Empress Nine Yin must have left behind something after falling in the battle, and the coffin had come looking for it.
“Xiao Yu, what’s your relationship with Empress Nine Yin? Could you be the reincarnation of Empress Nine Yin?”
It was merely a speculation. There were too many secrets behind all of these and the matter of the Great Sovereign was just too great to be accurately grasped by just speculation.
Jiang Chen was determined to dig even deeper into the matter. Yan Chenyu had gone missing ever since she came to the Immortal World. He was almost sure that the female corpse in the coffin was her. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to obtain the Immortal Execution Order and the Immortal Execution Sword when he approached the coffin that day in the ancient tomb.
Sooner or later, he would eventually find out the truth, but as this matter had involved Great Sovereign Batian, he immediately shifted his thoughts to the Great Sovereign.
By connecting the Monarch Mountain and Great Sovereign Batian, it wasn’t hard for him to think of one person – Nanbei Chao!
At this present moment, it was certain that Nanbei Chao was the reincarnation of a mighty Great Sovereign, but no one knew who the Great Sovereign was. Even the members of Nanbei Family had no idea about it. This was the secret of Nanbei Chao, or it should be said that Nanbei Chao had yet to recover his past memories.
However, the Monarch Heaven Art was a real existence; Jiang Chen dared to say that Nanbei Chao was very likely to be the reincarnation of Great Sovereign Batian.
“It seems like coming here in Fengchi Immortal Domain was the right choice. I will carry out a thorough exploration in this expedition.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. Qi was radiating from his body. Apart from saving Jiang Zhenhai, he had obtained an unexpected gain in this trip to Fengchi Immortal Domain. The Monarch Mountain and the remains of a Great Sovereign were most likely connected to Yan Chenyu and Nanbei Chao. The only way to verify his conjecture was to explore the remains of the Great Sovereign.
This time, nothing could stop Jiang Chen from entering it. All he had to do now was wait for it to open.
As a matter of fact, even if the secrets of Yan Chenyu and Nanbei Chao weren’t involved in this incident, he still wouldn’t choose to depart as the opportunity of discovering the remains of a Great Sovereign was extremely rare. Countless experts would surely be attracted to it. One could benefit profusely even if one only got a fraction of the treasure.
Now that Jiang Chen had made loads of enemies in this world, the only way to deal with them was by constantly improving his cultivation base. His current cultivation base was still at the peak of early Immortal Emperor realm and the present level of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was only at the forty-fifth level.
Furthermore, if Nanbei Chao was really the reincarnation of Great Sovereign Batian, Nanbei Chao would certainly emerge in the remains of the Great Sovereign. The thought of this aroused slight fear in Jiang Chen. Nanbei Chao would be able to move freely like a fish in the place where he had left his treasures. Large amount of benefits could be extracted from him, which would make him grow to an even more terrifying extent.
“Nanbei Chao, I, Jiang Chen, am bound to be the bane of your life. Your remains will open soon and I have come. I would like to see how you can retrieve the things you have left behind.”
The corner of Jiang Chen’s mouth revealed a smile. He felt glad after a brief moment of dread. He was glad that he had come to Fengchi Immortal Domain and the Monarch Mountain. Stopping Nanbei Chao would be his top priority in this exploration. He would do whatever it takes to stop Nanbei Chao from growing. Otherwise, the whole Eastern Profound Domain would surely be in deep chaos and many cultivators would surely face death.
Besides, the resources in the remains of the Great Sovereign was left by Nanbei Chao himself, and Jiang Chen was most willing to plunder them.
He stretched his body casually, ready for the task ahead. As to what would happen in the remains, he had no idea. Just like the expedition in Golden Horizon, he had never thought that such an earth-shaking thing would occur before entering it.
Anyone who tries to stop him would certainly end up dead just like the others in his previous encounters.
“Brother Jiang, your expression seems a little unusual, are you alright?”
Fenghua Zi, who was next to Jiang Chen, spoke. As a peak intermediate Immortal Venerable, he could naturally sense the changes in Jiang Chen.
“It’s fine. It’s my first time encountering the opening of the remains of a Great Sovereign. It’s unavoidable that I’m stirred by such a fortunate thing,” said Jiang Chen smilingly.
“En, that’s true. In fact, not only you, but also me. The opening of the remains of a Great Sovereign is indeed a major event. Countless people will come in search of their fortune. I too, intend to seek for some benefits in the remains of Great Sovereign Batian, which may help me break through to late Immortal Venerable in the future.”
Fenghua Zi nodded, didn’t sense anything unusual from Jiang Chen. Just like what Jiang Chen had said, it wasn’t easy to encounter the remains of a Great Sovereign. Only people with immense luck could encounter it. Therefore, it was normal for those who encountered it to feel stirred.
Jiang Chen looked at Fenghua Zi, and couldn’t help but sigh secretly. He had a sudden feeling that this expedition was completely different from the expedition in the Golden Horizon, because this expedition wasn’t restricted by age. Anyone was allowed to enter, including experts like Fenghua Zi. He was afraid that the scene ahead would be far worse than the fierce battles amongst the young generation.
